    I just came from watching the movie and I gotta say it was pretty good.
    I think Ashton kutcher played his part well.
    Thoughts anyone?

    I would do but haven't seen a release date anywhere for the UK yet. I doubt it will actually come to cinemas, and I'll be stuck watching it when it's out on iTunes or Netflix.

    Everyone I'd go with would rather see Kick-Ass 2, so that's where my money is going this weekend. I'll see the Aaron Sorkin Jobs movie/hopeful masterpiece in theaters.

    I'll wait until it shows up on iTunes and even then, only if its rentable, and not for purchase only

    I'll wait until it shows up on cable, and then only under certain conditions...

    Suicidal level boredom..

    "Gigli" isn't on at the same time...

    Life has become totally empty and devoid of all purpose and meaning...

    All other channels crash, computer crashes, ATV bricks, iPad and iPhone stolen...

    Under those circumstances, I might watch it.

    :rolleyes: ;)

    For me it will be on my Netflix rental queue down the road.

    Have any of you seen Pirates of Silicon Valley? (I think that is what it was called). That was an amusing film with a few choice lines. There was one exchanges between Gates and Jobs that went something like this -

    Jobs - Apple will always be a better computer.
    Gates - It really doesn't matter.

    Sorry if its a poor paraphrase but it was profoundly true.

    Now the flick above is one I'd like to see return to theaters. Meantime, I need to carve out some time to read Isaacson's book.

    I wonder if this would still be innovating after all the documentaries about Jobs.

    No way I'll see it in theaters.

    I'll watch it when it shows up on HBO/etc. I won't even waste my 1.20 on it at Redbox. Josh Gad is a terrible actor.

    I think they'll be lucky to get $7M this weekend.

    In 2001. the real Steve Jobs introduced the original iPod to an audience at Apple's headquarters.

    While Jobs presentation was impressive (the only thing he didn't get quite right was Firewire) - the crowd reaction was less than enthusiastic. Back in 2001 most of the people in that audience simply didn't understand everything that Jobs was seeing, and where that would ultimately lead the company.

    The fact that Jobs (the movie) gets this scene so utterly and terribly wrong tells me that the people who made the movie didn't really understand who Jobs was. They didn't understand the importance of getting things - not just close - but exactly right.

    I might give it a watch someday if its on Netflix and I'm really bored. Otherwise, I am not going out of my way for it.

    Possibly because not every evaluates films the same way, and liking the film is a matter of taste, not fact.

    I think Noah Wyle did a fantastic job in PoSV and really made the movie worthwhile to watch, IMO.

    Ashton Kutcher, IMO, not a very good actor.

    Thanks for the chuckle. :) Part of the problem is that I'm not an Ashton fan... and somewhere I read it was a 2 dimensional portrayal of a complicated personality.

    Perhaps. But people have also been complaining about jOBS accuracy. What about POSV? It wasn't so accurate either.

    I was speaking in terms of entertainment value and not so much about accuracy.

    And, of course, your iPod has committed suicide, too.....

    I'm still chuckling - great post.

    Well, gentlemen, you have completely convinced me. Unless I trip over it, and am tied to a chair, I shall avert my eyes should this appear on TV...

    Ah, well, I'm an historian by training and background. To me, the whole point of anything which claims to be a biography is something approaching accuracy....otherwise, it is simply a creative re-interpretation of the sort that goes by the name of fiction, or historical fiction.

    Actually, unlike many others who once dwelt in the groves of academe, I have no quarrel with historical fiction, or, indeed, any other kind of fiction. Just don't try to pass it off as fact, least of all historical fact....
